In a number of states that is not a problem. Here in WA you can apply for a title and get a limited title and after three years you get a normal title.

The potential fly in the ointment is that, during the three years, someone can come along and show ownership documents and then you have a fight on your hands.

Reality is that if you go through this process on a vehicle that has been basically been abandoned for many years this is quite unlikely.

Also, VT will register it by mail with just a bill of sale.

Cool looking old bus. I hope someone rescues it.

Here it would be a bill of sale a VIN and file for lost title.
Show pics and say you are restoring it.

Yeah...TX is stupid about a lot of stuff...pretty sure you'd have to register out of state...WA law makes sense...my budget, ADHD, and bipolar just wouldn't suit this project

The budget is the only part that wouldn't fit?
With the others in the end it COULD end up being better than a studebaker.
Because you argue and debate with yourself and then the next day you don't remember what YALL were fighting about so you do what looks good at the moment.

That bus has been listed for longer than I can remember. The title might be the reason. It is pretty darn dry in Big Spring (except for today) so IF it were a local bus, it might be in "decent" shape.
